Heartwarming / The Little Pony Legend

Go To

  • From The First Book
    • Right when Korra is about to be sent back to the south pole, leaving the ponies (and spike) in the airbenders care, all the elements rush Korra, telling her that they don't care if they never get home. They just want to be there for Korra.
    • A big element of the first book of the legend is that only those with open hearts are able to hear the ponies speak. (aside from Korra due to getting to hear them automatically) So, when you can hear them, it prompts all kinds of heartwarming.
      • For instance, all of Tenzin's kids can hear the ponies right away due to their kind hearts. With Ikki and Pinkie immediately getting into an energy off with each other.
      • Then when Tenzin opens up to Korra trying other techniques to get Airbending down, he smiles, and says happily "You can talk."
      • Bolin and Asami could hear the ponies right away! That means despite what some fans might think, those two always had open hearts about so much in their lives.

    • Mako finally admits his prideful failings as a friend to Team Avatar Harmony to Asami. He even gives her a big hug, but Asami now can finally see him for what he is now: A True True friend.
      • For that matter, the way Asami has complete trust in Mako's reasoning and authenticity, even when he gets arrested.
    • Korra's coronation. It allows everyone who wronged Korra in the story to make it up to her. When little girl who had insulted her previously offering the new princess a flower, it is particularly sweet.

      • Sunburst didn't forget about Starlight when he left for Canterlot, as he actually sent letters to her after leaving and eventually came back to look for her after her Start of Darkness. He also becomes a deputy alongside Mako and Bolin.
      • Also, Sunburst did not think any less of her, even after learning of all the things she did in the years they were apart.
